It’s Ruby Tuesday kids! Stop by WORK OF THE POET and check it out.
I hate clowns. I’m not afraid of them although I understand why many people are. They just annoy me.
This clown is the mascot for several liquor stores along the Jersey shore. There are 2 of them within 5 minutes of my house. This particular clown is the largest of any I’ve seen. He sits on an island right off a busy State Highway. The only way to snap a shot of him – or take a shot at him – is to manage to be at the curve in the road just when the light ahead turns red. In my quest for red I went around the jug-handle 4 times before I was at optimal shooting position.
The things I do for red.
An update to Sunday night’s post:
I’m sad to say it was not Spiderman coming to take me on wonderful skyscraper adventures. It was web worms. Thanks to all who gave me advice; special thanks to JAY SIMSER for finding the site that confirmed just how web wormy the glowing orb was.
After a few calls around the township and then the county I was referred to the ‘Shade Tree Commission’ and a wonderful, knowledgeable man there called me right back. He looked at my photos via e-mail and told me exactly what to do. Seems the branch will eventually die and fall and then the worms will lay their eggs in the ground and come out to do it all over and over. The branch has been removed and disposed of.
So I guess that means I’m still waiting for a hero.
